George Washington (February 17, 2014)

Name five U.S. presidents. Go.

If you had no problem, you did better than some of your fellow Americans.

One in 10 Americans can't do it, according to an online survey of 2,555 adults in the U.S. conducted between Jan. 28 and Feb. 11 by vouchercloud.net, an England-based coupon site.

The list of most memorable presidents named in the survey:

1)      Abraham Lincoln - 82%

2)      Barack Obama - 76%

3)      George Washington - 72%

4)      Bill Clinton - 69%
